What could be improved

I am absolutely disgusted in the way that I was or should I say was not treated when I was kept in hospital over night. I am a high risk patient who is 31 weeks pregnant. I was admitted because I had a bit of bleeding bellow. After I was admitted I was given a alternative to my proscribed tablets which did not work at all, my fragmen injection which I was should to have at 7.30pm was not given to me till around 12.30am. About 20 minutes later I heard a nurse come round the ward offering the other two ladies pain killers and switching there lights off and asking them if there was anything that they needed before they went to sleep. This nurse did not come any were near my cubical, offer me anything or turn off my light which I didn't know how to switch off my self. No nurse or midwife came to check on me all night. The next morning after I had eaten my breakfast and I had seen the doctor who asked me if I wanted to stay. obviously my answer was no, it took 3 hours for some one to write in my green book so then I could go home.

I am absolutely disgusted that this is how high risk patents are treated when told that they need to be kept in over night.
